Having shaved sides is a surefire way to get clean cut hair. If you have a long top, just brush it back and style it with putty or pomade. It’s easy, quick, and stylishly smart.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair in place with Axe Ice Chill Pomade. It gives your hair a firm hold but it’s easy to wash at the end of the day. 

2. Barber’s Cut

Barber’s cut is your quintessential Pinoy haircut. It’s more popularly is 2 x3 haircut, with short sides and back. It is also versatile, so you can style it in many different ways or make it a starting point for a more experimental haircut.

3. Short Quiff Clean Cut Hair

One way to keep your hair from looking flat is to create a quiff, even if you have short hair. With a hair gel with medium or firm hold, you can create a bit of height on top of your head and keep your quiff in place.

If you have slightly longer hair, instead of creating a quiff with height, you can make one that’s brushed toward the back. Just put hair gel or hair wax on your palms and finger-comb your hair backward without pressing your hair so it won’t get flat. This way, you’ll be able to create a modern quiff that’s versatile and can suit any outfit.

5. Voluminous Pompadour

Another way to style your hair with a long top is to play up its volume. Create this ‘do by rolling your hair upwards while blow-drying. Once you get the pompadour shape that you like, finish by putting pomade on your fingers and running them through your hair. Easy, right?

6. Modern Crew Cut

This updated military-inspired cut has a somewhat longer length than regulation but is still short enough for easy styling. This can be your go-to look if you want next-to-zero effort when it comes to styling and maintenance.

7. Short Pompadour with Shaved Sides

A short pompadour gives that sleek look with the slight height, given its vertical styling with rounded edges. In addition, a high shaved undercut would also help give more focus towards the pompadour on top of the head.

8. Faux Hawk

The faux hawk is a toned-down version of the mohawk hairstyle. It still has shorter sides and long top, but not long enough to be styled into a pompadour. To create the faux hawk, finger-comb your hair upwards while applying putty or pomade to create a spiky ‘do.

9. Short Textured Hair

Even with clean cut hair, there’s still a way for you to have that slightly tousled hair with this textured cut. With a longer top and shorter sides, this textured and tousled hair combines a slicked-back and messy look perfectly.

10. Disconnected Undercut

This ‘do has a long top, but the shaved sides are not tapered or fade, so the transition is abrupt. Make the contrast between the long top and shaved sides even more pronounced by playing up the hair’s volume for a sleek and dapper look.

A slicked-back hair can also look clean and polished by keeping the sides very short and making the top sleek and shiny. Use a pomade or gel to style your hair this way. Then, wear it together with your smart-casual attire to look professional while working from home.

12. Wavy Hair with Shaved Sides

Got naturally wavy hair? You don’t have to straighten it to achieve clean cut hair. You can sweep your waves forward or brush them back. Keep your sides shaven or sport an undercut to balance out the volume on top of your head.

13. Fade with a Heavy Top

The fade haircut is one of our ultimate favorites, and coupled with this heavy top hairstyle, it just makes us drool. Though still a clean cut, it brings out your face’s strong features like a powerful jawline. The fade is thin, so it feels airy and fresh.

Editor’s tip: Feel confident that your hairstyle will stay in place throughout the day by putting on some VO5 Gel Wax. It lets you sculpt your hair like wax but holds it in place like gel. Enjoy the benefits of two products in one.  

14. One-side hair

If you have long hair that you don’t want to cut but still want a clean cut hair, then, you can go for this one-sided hairstyle. Just keep the sides shorter than the top  (something like a fade) and finger-comb your hair to one side. For a  cleaner and sleeker finish, you can use a flat brush to set your hair.

Editor’s tip: Nail this look with the help of VO5 Rough It Up Putty. You can easily style your hair in whatever shape you want without worrying about it getting messed up. 

15. Skinhead

Want an almost no-maintenance look? Skinhead is the answer. This type of clean cut hair has little to almost no hair. It shows your scalp that’s why you need to make sure that you’re free from dandruff.

16. Wet Look with Thin Fade

You don’t have to be in the military to wear this look. It’s a clean, fresh, and simple cut that’s bound to make you feel presko on hot and humid days.
